Unless you have an interest or knowledge of the history of India, don't bother wasting a credit or your time. This was not entertaining. It was very raw and unpleasant (this, from someone for whom the F-Bomb is a part of life!). I listen to several books per week. It took me two weeks to struggle through this. I saw little point in the book and have no idea what appealed to me when I chose it. Don't make the same mistake. No stars is the harshest I have ever been.
I love Scott Brick's performance. He is second only to George Guidall, in my opinion. I have read many Brad Meltzer books and will read more.
It did not flow. There was too much jumping around and it was confusing. I hated the ending and felt cheated. He used this book simply as a set up for another book. It was not the cliff hanger I think it was meant to be.
He does different voices well. He performs women as well as men, so that you forget it is a man reading all the parts.I get into the characters better having him read to me.
No. I basically hated the book and found it very unsatisfying.
Performer is pleasant to listen to. I can read in the car while I'm driving and walking into work, doing my chores and exercising. Her books are easy reads. That is not bad. When I feel like a complicated book with multiple characters, I'll go to a different author.
Yes, and I have recommended it and her other books.
The main character.
Don't know, but it is a confusing title. Someone could have done a better job. That doesn't make the book less enjoyable, though.
I didn't know it was a true story. That was pleasing. It was well written and flowed nicely. It was interesting. I have not seen the movie so can't compare, but I don't think the movie had the sadness of his wife's sickness. Not sure, though. I listen to several books per week driving and doing chores. I enjoy a good reader. I feel they make the story. I did not like the reader of this book. I found the voice flat and unimaginative. He did not do female voices well. I never forgot that a male was reading the book. I actually thought it was read by the author (seldom a good idea-most should stick to writing and leave to reading to the pros), until I looked to see. I would probably listen again.
The wife. I liked her positive attitude and tenacity. And the mother. She was interesting. I would have liked to hear more about her. She was very generous and trusting with her life's savings.
I would have found someone else. I did not like his performance at all.
If someone else was the reader, I would listen to a follow up. Otherwise-no. I would like to hear more about the family.
Get a new reader.
Short, sweet and to the point: I read alot. I can't finish this. It is disjointed, unpleasant and never ending. It is a waste of my time and upsetting to even write about this singularly boring and undeserving book. I "get" Brit Lit humor. This isn't it. Spend your credit on something that makes sense.. This doesn't.
